My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Universal Ethician Church, Huntsville, TX, USA
This is an absolute farce of a 501c3. Pasted below a copy of their funds solicitation page, located at perpetualwar.org/donation.html, reviewed May 3, 2011. Notice, for example, that a $5000 donation "will get you five gold stars in God's Book of Life":
"With your help we can and will succeed in protecting and preserving God's Creation for all generations to come. God will bless you for helping to make a better world for all of the Earth's inhabitants. Your investment in the future health, welfare, and survival of the human species and all of God's Creation which call Planet Eden home will make you an angel in the eyes of God.

I have not.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Strip them of their 501c3 status, and force George H. Russell to pay income taxes on all donations he has received in the past.
